This photo is of Bevington Street, looking south from Bermondsey Wall. (Flockton Street was narrower - the car would have filled it!).

Cheers Fogbrain.
I assume that is the Riverside School on the left in Janeway Street. If it is then I should have picked up on that, lucky one of us is awake. :?

Indeed. The building on the right also survives; it houses an electricity transformer (and possibly already did when the photo was taken), but was previously a stable with a hayloft, a not uncommon repurposing in the London area.
